Hope I can ask this without causing a ruckus - is it moe. ? Personally, I'm looking at moe as a great opportunity to get a prime spot in the jam room for that night.
I've tried listening to moe a number of times including BC a couple years ago and they just don't do it for me. (please don't kill me Rex).
not THE reason but A reason for sure, this headliner fell strongly into the CON column when I was making my decision. Their music just doesn't do it for me at ALL... and to be honest, the worst crowd experiences I've had in the last 15 years was with the moe crowd at a Railroad Earth/moe double bill -> didn't leave me with warm fuzzies for the band or fans.
If they added Leslie E in some form or fashion, would that change anyone's mind? That's one addition I'm really holding out for...
this would help but still not seal the deal fer this gal.... would probably also take adding 7 Walkers AND Bandalabra to get me on the boat, and I don't see that happening.
7 in a row is a lot of years to devote most of my vacation time & money to... not quite sure what I'll do instead next year but am leaning towards Hawaii, 10 days in NOLA for Jazzfest, or a trip to Croatia - all very different options from each other, lol
and, of course - I reserve the right to change my mind @ JC11 at any time....!
